How to Teach Series Part #1

I had this idea and figured it'd be a great resource for homeschoolers. And since I won't be on as much for the next 2 to 3 weeks as my mom is flying in to spend time with us. I figured I'd start this now and space some posts out for while I'm offline.

So the first part of my series is going to focus on the Alphabet. It will cover letter sounds, identifying letters, how to write letters, and fun techniques for teaching letters.

Identifying Letters
Letter Sounds
  • At out house we have a song for learning letter sounds. We kinda make up what word we use for each letter each time but it starts a-a-apple, b-b-ball, c-c-cat, d-d-dog, and so on just make up the word as you do it. Its fun for the kids and they don't even realize they are learning the sounds.
  • We also just say the letter and sound with a word that begins when we have a letter of focus.

Writing Letters

Curriculum that focuses on Letters

Fun Letter Activities

Alphabet Movies

Several movies and show my boys love are what I am linking to.
I am sure there are plenty of great alphabet movies out there!

Welcome to Word World (this is how Austin learned his letters)


The rest of the series will cover numbers, unit studies, science, getting ready to read, math, life skills, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, circle time.

See ya in a few days with another part of this series!
